Photographer's Note

The Cloister of the Dominican Fathers is an impressive basilica in Krakow, Poland. The row of wooden angels along the wall caught my eye. "The large Dominican church of the Holy Trinity at Stolarska street and Dominikanska street, a three-minute walk from the Rynek Glowny central square, is a fine example of the Krakow version of Gothic architecture. It dates back to the mid-13th century and has been the stronghold of the Black Friars ever since. In 1850 the church suffered badly in the great fire that destroyed ten percent of the historic city of Krakow. And, unfortunately, the subsequent reconstruction hasn’t been quite accurate though it’s certainly unnoticeable to the untrained eye.

In 1957 Pope Pius XII has granted the title of a minor basilica to Krakow’s church of the Holy Trinity." http://www.krakow-info.com/Holy-Trinity.htm
